Springfield’s M1A traces its roots to the M14, adopted by the U.S. military in the late 1950s. That legacy of distinguished service continues today. Cabela’s offers four modern versions of the venerable M1A that blend all the fine attributes of this firearm’s past with the latest technology. Available:
M1A Scout Squad™ – Fast becoming a law enforcement favorite, it has a scout forward scope mount. Sights mounted forward in a scout-rifle configuration vastly improve target acquisition and provide unobstructed access to the receiver mechanism. The quick-handling 18" barrel has six-groove rifling with a 1:11" rate of twist. The two-stage military trigger is factory set at 5-6 lbs. The front sight is a national match .062" military square post and the rear sight is a military aperture sight adjustable for windage and elevation. Also has a proprietary muzzle brake/stabilizer and black synthetic stock. 10-round parkerized box magazine included.
M1A SOCOM 16 – This version of the M1A can be an effective close-quarters defense rifle or a great ranch gun. It has the minimum barrel length allowed for a rifle by federal law with six-groove rifling with a 1:11" rate of twist. Its two-stage military trigger is factory set at 5-6 lbs. The front post sight has a tritium insert for shooting in low light. The ghost-ring rear sight adjusts for windage and elevation. It has a proprietary SOCOM muzzle brake and a forward-mounted scope base that’s ideal for electronic sights or other accessories. 10-round parkerized box magazine included.
M1ALoaded – As in loaded with match-grade features that include an air-gauged, medium-weight, parkerized national match barrel with six-groove rifling that has a 1:11" rate of twist. It has a national match-grade two-stage military trigger that's tuned to 4.5-5 lbs. The front sight is a national match .062" blade. The rear sight is a GI match-grade nonhooded aperture that's adjustable in increments of one-half minute for windage and one minute for elevation. It also has a national match-grade flash suppressor. 10-round parkerized magazine included.
M1AStandard – Accurate, reliable and durable, this is serious Springfield craftmanship without any nonsense. The 22", standard-weight, carbon-steel barrel has a 1:11" rate of twist. Its two-stage military trigger is factory set at 5-6 lbs. Boasts a walnut stock with steel buttplate and a national match-grade flash suppressor. Military square post front sight and a rear military aperature with MOA adjustment for windage and elevation. 10-round parkerized box magazine included.
